Crazy Dough Pizza – Gemma’s Crazy Dough Bread Series Ep 2
Hi Bold Bakers.
Crazy Dough is one dough with endless possibilities,
both sweet and savory like cinnamon rolls
or even Naan bread.
Last week we made cheesy bread with the dough
and this week we’re going to use the same
dough to make pizza.
So let’s get baking.
So I know that everybody out there will be
able to make this dough.
It is really easy and best of all, you don’t
even need a stand mixer to make it.
Now I made the dough in a previous video so
make sure you check that out.
And also the recipe for it can be found on
Okay, now let’s talk pizza.
Here I have my dough.
And this dough makes four big pizzas, so just
cut it into four sections.
Now I’m going to roll out one pizza to show
you how to make it, but if you don’t want
to cook off all four pizzas, then pop these
guys into baggies and put them in the fridge
or you can even freeze them and then take
them out whenever you want to make homemade
Okay so on a floured surface I’m going to
roll my dough into a ball.
Get a nice round shape on him.
So now, when you’re rolling out dough, you
might notice that it springs back into shape
and goes kind of small.
Don’t worry, that’s exactly what bread
dough should do.
And what it is is the gluten retracting and
going small again.
So here is the trick.
You want to put a towel over your pizza dough.
Let it sit there, walk away, let it rest for
around 15 minutes and by the time you come
back to it, it will be really easy to roll
If it still springs back, it needs a little
bit more time.
But don’t worry, it will get there.
So I let my dough rest for around 20 minutes
and now he’s going to be ready to roll out
So every Monday I’m going to show you a
new recipe that you can use this one dough
for like focaccia and pretzels so make sure
you tune in every Monday.
Now you want to roll out your pizza to roughly
ten to twelve inches.
It is going to give you a lovely thin crust.
So great, our pizza is lovely and round.
Mine don’t always come out round so this
is looking good.
Now here I have a thin edged tray that is
dusted with some flour.
And what we’re going to do is carefully
lift our pizza base onto our tray.
Now you’re going to see why in a few minutes.
Okay, once he’s on there, you start to decorate
your pizza while he’s on the tray.
Now you do this so it can easily slide from
this tray into the oven.
Now here I’ve got some pizza sauce.
Now I have a recipe for this sauce on biggerbolderbaking.com,
but you can also use store bought sauce.
Now I’m just going to get a big spoonful
and spread it all the way around my base.
Don’t be shy with the sauce.
It’s one of my favorite parts.
And then I’m going to scatter over some
Now you can use any kind of a cheese that
you want; it’s really up to you.
Parmesan would be good.
Some swiss cheese.
The more, the merrier when it comes to the
Now you want to be careful when you’re putting
on your toppings.
Don’t put on too many toppings because it
will weigh down your pizza and you won’t
be able to get it off the tray.
Now we’re going to make one of my favorite
pizzas which is pepperoni pizza.
I absolutely love it.
So I’m going to put on lots of pepperonis
Now these pizzas are really fun to make at
the weekend, for sleepover or for parties.
They are easy to make and everyone can decorate
and make their own.
Okay, this is looking delicious.
This pizza is ready for the oven.
So you want to bake your pizza at 450 degrees
Fahrenheit or 225 degrees Celsius for roughly
nine to twelve minutes.
So as you saw, I actually had a preheated
tray in my oven and the reason that I do this
is because it gives you a lovely, crispy crust.
So if you can, put a tray into your oven and
slide your pizza right on to that.
It will make the world of difference.
So this is a good time to say if you haven’t
yet done so, don’t forget to hit that subscribe

Okay, I’m starting to smell pizza and gooey
cheese so I think it’s ready.
This pizza looks amazing.
The crust is a lovely golden brown on the
outside and what I love is that there is still
gooey cheese in the middle.
Now we’re going to go ahead and cut our
pizza because its best enjoyed warm, straight
from the oven so it’s still nice and soft.
Now just look at this base.
It’s a lovely, thin, crispy base.
This is my kind of pizza.
Oh my gosh.
Who does not love homemade pizza?
And you saw how easy it was to make this.
You have to try this recipe.
Okay, so with our crazy dough we have already
made cheesy bread and we’ve made pizza.
So you’ve got to come back next Monday because
I’m going to show you how to make delicious
I really hope you enjoyed this episode and
I will see you back here next week for more
